Wildcats hold off Wildcats in wild one

I tweeted early yesterday that just because the score was close didn't mean it was a "good" game however last night's game between Dekaney and Cy Woods definitely was what I consider a "GOOD" game in fact it was better than good as Dekaney won 60-56

I think the official was asking Jasmine Smith how many threes she had in the opening quarter,, well it was 3 as she played around the world with herself  dropping three long as the opening quarter ended at 15 all and in the 2nd quarter, Dekaney tried to open this thing up as the led at halftime 33-24

I told Jaelyn Richard -Harris thanks for making me look like a genius because what she brings to the table was definitely shown last night as she recorded an unofficial triple double but I know she had way over 10 points and steals and peep this, had all the shots been made in the opening quarter, she would have had 10 assists then

 Cate Reese simply went off scoring 29 points on the night from a variety of ways and her countless free throws, I didn't count them, in the second half helped fuel the comeback in the 3rd quarter ironically with starter Jasmine Williams sitting out in foul trouble. Williams definitely made her presence felt down the stretch and her back to back baskets gave Cy Woods a 54-53 lead with 1:25 left, After trading baskets, Smith dropped her 4th three which seemed like it was from I-45 and that was definitely a momentum changer

Nancy Mulkey probably had a close to a triple double as well, I took a bite of my snickers bar every-time she blocked a shot and that was more than ten bites but that impressive front-court still received solid guard play to stay in striking distance which means they are going to be in the hunt come late February if that trend continues
Dekaney keeps getting a variety of players to step up every game I've seen them which is probably around five times other than Harris and Smith. Whether it's Kene Hamilton or Makeedah Collins who join them in the starting lineup or Kaela Brooks and the sophomore "bigs" of Hill and Dirden, they always have at least a third player that brings "it" to the came. Last night it was Keishawna Scott who probably had a double-double herself . Scott is a track star that can play basketball, her athleticism is through the roof and she came up with numerous big time plays on the evening

BOX well sort of
